Dukan – Days 249 & 251

Monday was a PP day πŸ™‚
Wednesday was a starvation day 😦  Poor planning!

Monday stats: +0.4 lb/+0.2 kg – Total: 89.8 lbs/40.81 kgs
Tuesday’s weight didn’t get recorded because I got roused out of bed for a birth.
Wednesday stats: -0.9 lb/0.44 kg – Total: 90.7 lbs/41.21 kgs

I’m so exhausted from the 16 hour birth marathon I ran yesterday that I can’t for the life of me remember what I ate on Monday… oh… let me go look at my journal… lol

Breakfast: 2 tea eggs
Lunch: 1 tea egg, tin of tuna with dijon mustard
Dinner: Β Chicken breast with onions and garlic stems
Snack: pot of FF yogurt with splenda and bran

Monday Exercise: 3 games of wii Bowling (high score of 212!!) and a 1 mile walk to work, from work and then around the block for a total of 3 miles.

Tuesday Exercise: 3 mile run

Wednesday food:
Breakfast: none
Lunch: 2 tea eggs
Snack: 2 tea eggs
Dinner: yeah… i’m sure you know where this is going… the last tea egg
I was at a birth all day… I didn’t plan well. There were no protein sources. At 1130 the Ayi (maid) that cleans my house and my office lovingly went to the tea egg shop and brought me 5 eggs… YOU ROCK AYI!!!!!! But that was all I ate, all day… which is very, very, very bad!
Snack… after I dragged my butt home after midnight: a baby bell round. I estimate I had less than 500 calories yesterday and I suspect it will show with a weight INCREASE tomorrow, as crazy as that sounds. On this diet you HAVE TO EAT!

Wednesday Exercise: I labored a lady all day… that is like running a marathon! πŸ™‚ LOL, I did hip squeezes, back rubs and other things to help her… my pecs are feeling the workout from the hip squeezes! I walked home (although it was more like a run on the timing) after midnight… 1 mile.

Nice birth, baby girl… happy mom and dad, and that’s what counts.

Birth… it does a midwife good πŸ™‚

  1. You are OH SO RIGHT – “on this diet you have to eat!” I spent the evening at the State Capital (part of my job) and the food choices were …. plentiful but totally wrong for me. I did the best I could but I sure learned my lesson — eat before I head over there and pick from the choices.


    • I walked right past the egg stand w/o getting eggs! And I have tins of tuna and other portable stuff… just wasn’t using my noggin’ πŸ™‚
      It is totally about eating enough and eating the right foods.

  2. yeah for birth! I am anxiously awaiting a phone call from my sister in law who I get to be a doula for! I wish she had you for a midwife! My brother-in-law and his wife are in San Men (I’m not sure of the spelling), he works at the nuclear plant there. They’ve just found out she is expecting. Needed lots of interventions in her previous pregnancy (a stint needed to be put into her urinary tract ?? I can’t remember now! monthly… hopefully this won’t be the case this time) Know of any good places for her to seek care? I’m not sure how far that is from you either- oy! (I looked for a place to “contact” or email you, but couldn’t find one… hence the long comment! πŸ™‚ ps. I am so amazed by your diet success! It is awesome and amazing! And I am so proud of you for sticking with it! The results speak for themselves- fabulous!

  3. sometimes i think the days we don’t plan well and have a *starvation day* are almost worst than the days we binge… you can work the calories off but not eating throws your entire metabolism outta whack! but it happens to the best of us…
    you rock no matter what!

  4. Fantastic! Great to see I’m not the only one using the Wii Fit when there’s no time for “proper” exercise. I wish they’d brought out more games tho… Keep up the good work! Sara
